  • 1 Post By Wild Curls Raquelle

Hey everybody I am battling with dry hair and I am also trying to find a good deep conditioner for my hair. I would like to know what deep conditioner you use and how you battle your dryness. I live in Louisiana so it is extremely hot especially humid even in the morning times.
Hi Lala, I like CurlJunkie Curl Rehab. It has no silicones and it really moisturizes my hair.

Good luck - I hope you get a lot of good suggestions!
2/c and some 3A.
Protein sensitive but can use occasionally
Highly porous. Color over grey.
Best 1st day method: Super Soaker
Stylers: Mix Curls in a Bottle into everything for shine. Terrible pj
Sometimes try roller sets - classic glamor but I prefer my curls.
Every day is a gift
I use the Lustrasilk Cholesterol Shea and Mango Butter DC and I add honey to it. Works great.

my hair is also very dry.
you can purchase deep conditioners and three minute hair masks from the drugstore- i dont what kinds you might have there, but something i know EVERYBODY has is natural ingredients

try using homemade hairmasks: you can use olive oil and honey warmed in the microwave and apply it from your roots to ends and rinse it off in a half hour to an hour depending on how dry your hair is.

ive heard mayo is good too, and bananas try going on google for homemade hair mask recipes. give that a try
thanks everybody for your input i will be trying those out i would also like to try out the homeade reciepes.
try deep conditioning dry hair for 2-4 hours or overnight...

I like Aveda Sitrinillah deep conditioner. I haven't tryed dc'ing with a heat cap, but some recomend it for opeing the hair cuticles so the moisture goes better/faster in and then finish with a rinse with cold water to close the moisture in again.
I live next door to ya Chica Mississippi so I feel your pain but I have no issues with dryness bc I use water based products meaning the first ingredient is water.
Deep condition with a water based once a week!
Use honey/evoo as a pre poo adds shine luster, and moisture!

Hope this helps!!

So far I've been using Aussie's 3 minute miracle for two weeks now. I realized my scalp can go 3-4 days without putting any essential oils on it. I'm also going to try washing my hair with a shampoo bar soon to see if that alleviates dryness in the scalp
Products I'm currently :
  • Karen's Body Beautiful Sweet Ambrosia (Vanilla Latte scent)
  • Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Style Milk
  • Certified Organic Coconut Oil
  • Karen's Body Beautiful Heavenly Jojoba Oil
Staple Deep Conditioners: Giovanni Direct Leave-in and Karen's Body Beautiful Luscious Locks Hair Mask

Well, I battle with dry hair sometimes, but here's what I did yesterday that worked:

On clean hair: I got some unrefined shea butter on my palms, I added a few drops of warm water to it, rubbed my palms together and worked the shea butter into my hair. Next, I put a plastic cap on and tied a scarf over it. I slept with the plastic cap still on. By morning, my hair felt well....not dry!

Also, you can work some olive oil into your hair, that might work.
I think shea butter works the fastest (compared to other natural things) on my hair.
Things I use: Olive Oil, Canola oil, rosemary oil, aloe vera gel, shea butter, mayonnaise, eggs, milk, bananas

Everything I use is 100% natural. I make most of them myself because then I'm sure what's in it and I'm sure nothing's added, it's pure, it's natural.

Things I avoid: Mineral oil (codename: Baby oil), heat (I'm a total, no hair driers, no straighteners, no curling irons, no flat irons, no hot combs...nada), sodium chloride

Growing plan: At least 6 inches longer in a year.

There is a noticeable difference within I'd say 6 weeks of consistent use. You can use a variety of oils. EVOO, CO, JBCO are some of the more commonly used pre-poo oils either separately or together. I've used avocado as well which is really good. I prefer to mix the oils because each does something different for the hair. I like to do this bi-weekly during the winter months when the air is the harshest on your hair. It's very, very good on the ends which is the oldest part of your hair and you will see a considerable difference. Also you can add honey to your dc or rinse out conditioner, which will help penetrate the hair shaft and help retain moisture. In addition sealing your ends with butter or oil as needed or daily makes a difference as well. HTH
